The Barnard College Collegiate Science and Technology Entry Program (CSTEP) is a New York State Education Department initiative designed to increase the number of students from
under-represented groups who are pursuing professional licensure and careers in mathematics, science, technology and health-related fields. Program elements, objectives, and key
activities will include academic and career advising; tutoring for critical science gateway entry courses; workshops on subjects including but not limited to writing, study skills, critical
thinking, resume development and interview techniques; internships, research and/or clinical opportunities, to give students hands-on experience and exposure to the professions and
fields of their interest; opportunities to attend and/or participate in professional conferences; events featuring speakers from the licensed professions; networking opportunities; and test
preparation for graduate school exams.

Meal Plans
Participation in a campus meal plan is required for all Barnard students. All incoming first year residential students are required to participate in the unlimited meal
plan, while first-year students who commute from home will be required to participate in one of the three Convenience Plans. Upper class students in the Quad will
partake of a new plan at a lower cost, with fewer meals than had been required in the past. All other full-time students and part-time students who reside in a
Barnard owned or operated residence hall will be enrolled in the Convenience 2, or DEFAULT plan. Beginning in July, all students will have the ability to upgrade
or switch to a different meal plan if it better fits their lifestyle and schedule, which includes switching to a Kosher plan. All changes need to be made prior to Friday,
September 10, 2010. If a student selects a different plan that is higher in price, she will see the additional charge on the next campus bill she receives. Students are
free to upgrade to any of the other meal plan choices. All of the plans will have a Kosher option at a slightly higher cost, with the exception of the Points Only Plan,
which is offered at the same price.




Meal Plan Points

Meal Plan Points are "dollars" that are part of your meal plan that you can use like cash at any dining location on Barnard’s campus. You may use these points to purchase à
la carte meals and snacks for guests and friends. Meal Plan Points carry over from the Fall semester to the Spring semester if you remain enrolled in a meal plan in the
Spring. Meal Plan Points remaining on account at the end of the academic year are forfeited.

Dining Dollars

Dining Dollars are available initially in $100.00 increments and deposited in your account much like a bank account. They can be used to supplement your dining plan and
provide the convenience of purchasing items on both the Barnard and Columbia campuses. Dining Dollars carry over from year to year. Any Dining Dollars unused by the
end of your Senior year will be forfeited. When you use Dining Dollars, simply tell the cashier, and they will be deducted from your account. You may purchase Dining
Dollars at the Dining Services Office located on the Mezzanine level of Hewitt Hall or the Dining Customer Service Center in 18 Hartley Hall on the Columbia Campus.

Students who subscribe to one of the various meal plans are provided validation through their College I.D. card, which must be used at all dining facilities. Students may
not use another student’s card for purchases.
